I just bought my Focus about 2 days ago, and I have put a little over 150 miles on it. I've been impressed with the way it drives. I have always owned a car with a manual transmission, but this little car has been a new experience for me. It has a lot of power, and there is no change in power even when my whole family is in there, nor when I turn on the air conditioning. Neither has made the engine stall what so ever. I drive about 80 miles a day and I feel this car is going to be the best with fuel efficiency, it has been so far. I am proud of the 100k mile warranty on the engine. It made it so much easier making my decision for purchase. I am very pleased so far.
The body style is a favorite. The material of the upholstery is nice. It seems to have good quality features, nothing looks cheaply made.
The road noise is the only thing I have seen wrong with it so far, maybe taller tires might take out some of the sounds.
